The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced plans to establish an international centre of cardiology in Dubai in collaboration with the New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Humaid Al Qatami, chairman of the board and director-general of the DHA, signed an agreement with New York Presbyterian Hospital during his official tour of the US.

Following the agreement signing, Al Qatami said: "The DHA is aware of the growing demand for its specialised health services across hospitals, primary care centres and specialised centres."

"Cardiology is one of the most important fields of medicine and the establishment of an international centre for cardiology will increase Dubai's competitive capabilities on the international medical front. It will further bolster its position on the global medical tourism map," Al Qatami added.
